The paper mentions that coupled with the expected growth in bandwidth through the next decade, cloud computing will change the face of TV. The Internet brought the potential to completely reinvent TV. First, it let users see what they wanted, when they wanted, while suppressing the need for additional hardware. Second, and more importantly, the Net removes the barrier that separates producers, distributors, and consumers.Third, the Internet allows mixing and matching of multisource content. It has become commonplace for networks to mix their own footage with user-generated content to provide a more holistic experience.From a technical viewpoint, huge challenges remain, however, including the ability to process, index, store, and distribute nearly limitless amounts of data. This is why cloud computing will play a major role in redefining TV in the next few years.
